My Dell 2135cn printer all the sudden started making crazy loud grinding noises. Then I got a paper jam. I fixed the paper jam and tried to print again, but got the loud grinding noises and paper jam...


Refer to the service manual in disassembling the device.. Clean it thoroughly then try it again.. If, you have no experience in doing so, hire a qualified tech to do so.

Well, I did everything your steps said to do but that did not fix the problem. When all is done and turned back to online, the printer buzzes and flashes the 13 paper jam again; however, there is no paper...


If your printer makes a load clicking sound and then shows "paper jam" then the problem is a broken drive motor gear. This is a very common problem with this unit. The nylon gear on the drive motor becomes brittle due to the age of the unit and cracks. When this happens the gear teeth do not mesh with the other gears and you get the grinding and clicking sound, and no paper pickup. You can change the gear yourself. The drive gear is available here:

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Xerox phaser 8560 DN is jamming in same place every time.  I remove paper and it re jams in same place.  Now printer is making a loud gear slipping noise.


There is mostlikey a scrap of paper that you can not see still in the machine. You can gently walk a thicker piece of paper through the paper path and see if it pushes out the obstruction. Be very careful not to scratch the drum when you try this.
Hope this helps

Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams


Loud clacking sound, jamming in fuser ? sounds like the gear that turns the fuser are bad and not meshing together,
accordion jam is the fingers or claws that ride on the fuser roller are probably worn out ( these can be replaced usually 3-5 ).

You can buy the parts and replace them yourself if a handy person, not that difficult.

Document feeder works for printing but not for scanning


Hi, When you had the doucment feed jam were you able to clean or remove any paper that might be blocking the paper to be scanned? It sounds like there is paper still in the document feeder , I would open the DF and check very closely to make sure no paper is in the way!Good Luck!

My New ML-2010 creates a loud annoying sound!


Ok, it is good you checked for paper jams. I need you to look inside the unit where the paper roller is on both sides and see if both sides look even and the same. It still sounds like a jam to me, and this would definitely create a loud sound as your unit is trying to print for you and the mechanism will keep trying to turn even if it can't. Something may snap or break if there is a jam so make extra extra sure you check every nook and cranny as jams can be so very tiny. I found a piece the size of a matstick width in mine that my toddler had posted in it, and it was caught in the paper roller teeth inside the unit. When you open your printer, does the cartridge holder roll by itself to the left or stay still??? Take out the toner cartridge and thoroughly clean inside with solution and replace.
